Acting Chairperson Avril Nicoll attended yesterday's 'Mearns Moving Forward Community Conference' at Mearns Academy on behalf of Laurencekirk Scout Group.
The theme of this free event was 'sustainability'. Its purpose was to inspire and equip community groups and individuals to help themselves. Avril says, "It was a really good day. I came away with lots of useful information and contacts for our Scout Hut project, and I have also picked up tips that will come in handy for the general running of the group."
The event was organised by the Mearns Area Partnership in conjunction with Transition Mearns. Lunch and refreshments were provided by the ladies of Laurencekirk Parish Church.
